Album Remarks & Appraisals:
"The orchestral part is significant; far from being just an accompaniment to the singers, it provides a strong, colorful commentary on the dramatic situations. It also prominently features an improvised electric guitar part, played imaginatively here by Frisell. Rinde Eckert, Danny Barnes, and Robin Holcomb sing beautifully, soulfully, and are convincing as actors in the spoken parts. Christian Knapp leads the Northwest Sinfonia in a polished and passionate performance. Joe Hill is a powerful and moving work that deserves to be widely heard. Highly recommended." -All Music Guide
The Wire - "Songs of protest, some written by Hill, are woven together with sweeping strings that often hark back harmonically to Aaron Copland."
